We all love smartphones, because they are always within an arm reach to catch the best moments in our life situations, easily manipulate those images and share them directly into our favorite social media channels. But, oftentimes, there is a big problem when a PC is out of reach- how to select and cut out people with that perfectly imperfect messy hair to include their picture perfect smiles on the prank or any other photo-manipulations you are making. This article explores the ways in which users can select and smoothly cut out any hair from an image on a mobile device.

Until recently making cutouts of any messy hair was possible only by using Photoshop™, or other professional graphic design software on laptop or PC. Not speaking of the skills one would need to master to get accurate selection around messy hair.

You would ask what about mobile photo editors such as Enlight, Picsart, Pixlr, Retouch, FaceTune, etc. available nowadays that offer multiple features of editing? Well, none of those makes it possible to accurately select and make smart cutouts of messy hair from any image.

This article explores the ways in which users can select and smoothly cut out any hair from an image on a mobile device with the help of Pixomatic mobile photo editor, which has introduced the first-ever mobile hair selection tool last week. The uniqueness of Hair Tool mobile feature is the possibility to select and smoothly cutout any type of messy hair with the help of fingertips and without any prior skills.
